Reducing smoking rates in the G21 region: Presentation and discussion

Thursday, 28 November 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Smoking is a major cause of preventable death in Victoria and a leading cause of avoidable chronic illness and hospitalisation from conditions including cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Each year approximately 4000 Victorians die due to smoking. Not only that, the costs for direct healthcare and lost productivity equate to over two billion dollars.

Keynote Speaker Dr Sarah White (Director, Quit Victoria) will be presenting to our community on how we can work together to reduce smoking rates in the G21 region.

This comes at a time when the use of e-cigarettes are on the rise in Australia and internationally, particularly for young adults.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussions.
